Have you visited your Urban (green) jungle today?Most of us in the cities have to travel great distances from the concrete jungle to see the real jungle. This would not be feasible for many of us.
Children need to understand and learn from nature. Instead of spending time in a shopping mall or an unhealthy fast food joint, can't we visit the little pockets of greenery in our part of town or city? Although, on a smaller scale, children can interact with nature, see trees, birds around a water body and also get a fresh breath of air.
On a weekend, how many of us take our kids out to a park or garden or a zoo nearby or within city limits to spend some real time to learn about mother nature (not to just play around or have snacks and add to the litter). Many large parks in cities offer bird watching classes on Sundays.
